ShackStream: Throwin' yo-yos with Bridget in Guilty Gear Strive Season 2

Bridget has kicked off Guilty Gear Strive's Season Pass 2 DLC and we're taking her yo-yo fighting style for a spin in a special ShackStream!


Guilty Gear Strive Season Pass 2 is live, and kicking off the festivities is the launch of new/returning character Bridget. The Guilty Gear XX/X2 alumni is available to purchase and play in Guilty Gear Strive now. As usual, we’re doing a special ShackStream where we’ll be exploring and demonstrating Bridget’s moves and then putting them into some practice in online play!

Bridget was launched in Guilty Gear Strive on August 8 on all available platforms. Her inclusion marks the start of Guilty Gear Strive Season Pass 2, in which Bridget is the first of four currently planned characters for the game. First introduced in Guilty Gear X2, Bridget is a bounty hunter that uses specialized yo-yos and her living teddy bear Roger in combat. Bridget can throw her yo-yos out as projectiles and either call them back or yank herself to them in a variety of setplay attacks.

Join us as we explore these aspects of the character and more as we go live with Guilty Gear Strive at 2:15 p.m. PT / 5:15 p.m. ET on the Shacknews Twitch channel. You can also watch below.
